It's like somebody slows down the whole game for a second, then it's normal again etc etc, Matrix style, DX9 works fine, although the fps still fluctuates way too much with random slowdowns. It's not the mouselag that you get in DX10 when fps is too low, this is the whole world lol.

It crashes with 4Gb Ram though, so I'm playing with 2Gb now. Lets hope the full retail runs like butter and hope we get new drivers next week.
DX10=Vista=SLI Crap in Vista...

So I may be picking up another GTX in about two weeks. Sounds like SLi is fully enabled in the new 169.09 drivers. How is the performance now? 40-50% speedup?

You're only running an FX-60 though. You might be experiencing a CPU bottleneck. I'm wondering what somebody with a Core2 at 3.4GHz+ would get if using SLi... hopefully better results.

Good to know. I'm hoping for comparable performance from my rig, only using just "High" settings.

I'd say at least 30-40% increase with 2 cards. I'm sure it'll get better with drivers and patches.

Beta driver for GeForce 6, 7, and 8 series GPUs.
Recommended driver for Crysis.
Several game and application compatibility fixes. Please read the release notes for more information on product support, features, driver fixes and known compatibility issues.

That's definitely better than nothing. If they could only get it up to near a 100% increase...

Bah, 40% pretty much sucks.

I would think SLI should help this game tons its so GPU heavy but that doesn't seem to be the case.

It should improve a little over the next week or two.
